Police have today confirmed that a missing family of five who were thought to have died in the Grenfell Tower fire which killed at least 79 people are alive and well.

'Family liaison officers are supporting families, and that includes those people we know to be dead; some of those who are critically ill and sadly those people who we have been told were in Grenfell Tower that night who we have been unable to trace.

The Prime Minister has become the target of anger over her response to the disaster, which has left 58 people presumed dead.

Cdr Cundy warned of the potential "terrible reality" that some people may never be identified due to the intensity of the fire.

Mr Cundy said the search-and-recovery operation was ongoing in the burnt-out, 24-storey tower.

Cundy said he would be "looking at all criminal offenses that might have been committed by any individual or any organization". "Wherever we can, we will bring people to justice if there is evidence". Cundy has promised to share with relevant authorities any issues that needs to be addressed immediately to protect public safety.

The death toll rose yesterday and is expected to increase as more people are identified.

"Equally there may be people who were in there that we believe are missing that did escape but for whatever reason have not let it be known that they're safe and well, so again I would appeal to them directly".

Survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire are being given just £10 to live on by the local council, despite millions of pounds of donations to relief funds, a volunteer has said.

The minute's silence was held outside Caird Hall at 11am in line with others across the country following the blaze at Grenfell Tower last Wednesday.

'And it is incredibly hard to describe the devastation in some parts of that building'.

He added that teams and families of missing loved ones must prepare for "the bad reality" that some of those who died in the fire may never be identified due to the intensity of the fire.

"Until we do that, we can not look at anything other than staying with the same advice".

Photos and videos published by the Metropolitan Police show the gutted wreckage of apartments.

The remnants of an exercise bike, an oven and washing machine point to the lives of residents in the moments before the blaze. The cops and the rescue department have intensified their search and service dogs have also joined the grim search for bodies in Grenfell Tower which turned into ashes.
